Involute: A method for the integration of multi-axis fabrication with a helical system of variable wood bending
ACADIA 13: Adaptive Architecture [Proceedings of the 33rd Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-1-926724-22-5] Cambridge 24-26 October, 2013), pp. 441-442
“Involute” is an ongoing research trajectory leveraging internal material capacities of wood. It is a system of variable components without the need for complex, custom molds, yielding a 3D structural matrix of natural timber.
